One of the toys that I enjoyed most as a child was a refrigerator box. The possibilities were endless - Let's build a fort, truck, spaceship, castle or an observation station for feeding birds. How about a few sheets and a living room's worth of furniture? It was the simple things that we could play with for hours. And why should it be any different with children today?
Today I joined my friends Brett, Holly and Bella at the Columbia Zoo. This being Bella's first visit to the zoo, you would think that she would be fascinated by all of the animals. She was for a short time, then her focus would shift to the llama poo. They even had a children's t-shirt in the gift shop that read, "Poo at the Zoo". Bella also loved climbing on the rocks inside the penguin house. Maybe there is a lesson that we can learn from our younger counterparts - "Keep it simple".
For anyone that might be interested to know, my preference of Zoos would have to be the Columbia Zoo versus the Asheboro Zoo. It was much more compact, you can get closer to the animals and the grounds are beautifully landscaped (something I'm sure only I would notice).
Thanks Holly and Brett for allowing me to join you today. I had a great time!
